I keep fries in same tank with breeder box. Overfeed foods in breeder box will foul up water and stress the fries ( small fish easy die ) if regular WC not provided. Even if I don't overfeed I try to do regular WC 30% every 2 days and remove uneaten foods.
Unless you trsf the fries and keep in separate tank with sufficient filtration then MAYBE overfeeding can be done ( try on your own risk, I've never try before due to limited space at home ).



p/s from my own experience in fry raising, other ppl might have even better methods which i might not know.

Take it as the fry is your baby la, after feeding you will pat pat the child right? why? not only water will be fouled but the fry itself their digesting system not kicking in yet. Best is small feed but frequent. Just like your small altum lor

Haha okay I'll try alternate days feeding. Got to go slow as advised too.
Spirulina? Maybe they might turn out with good coloration!
